The early reveal of the Microsoft Courier, Apple Mac tablet attacking, dual-touchscreen lovely yesterday was exciting enough. But it seems Microsoft has more for us.

Scott Guthrie, a Microsoft employee on Twitter, tweeting in the early hours of the morning: "I am doing a press conference in 12 hours where I will announce something big."

A big of digging on the Microsoft site reveals that Guthrie's a corporate vice-president in Microsoft's .Net team. Whatever he's working on is likely to be software and connected to Microsoft's Flash competitor Silverlight.

But, the Microsoft Courier is sure to use brand new software for its exciting new dual screen interface. Could Guthrie's team be about to reveal a revolutionary new UI? We'll find out in mere hours.

Take your speculation and derision to the comments.
